Product Description

Benchmark’s PlateFugeTM is the first "mini"-sized centrifuge with a swing-out rotor for microplates. Centrifuging plates before PCR ensures all reactants are in the bottom of the wells for proper concentrations and improved yields..

Product Features

  • Remarkably small footprint (9×10 in.)
  • A swing out rotor (patent pending) is capable of securing two microplates. 
  • By modifying the level and relative operation speed of the pendulum, the combined operation mode may obtain the optimal result.
  • The rotor chamber is easily accessible and features two plate bearers that sit at a 75° angle.
  • Plates can be confidently installed without the need for sealing tapes or caps When the centrifuge lid is closed, the rotor accelerates and the centrifugal force "swings" the plates into a horizontal position.
  • Most samples can be spun down in less than 20 seconds using a g-force of 600 xg.
  • Simply lift the lid to end a run, and the automated, electronic brake brings the rotor to a quick, smooth stop in 4 seconds. Plates will then be easily removed from the rotor.
